Brakebush has grown to operate three processing facilities through a recent transaction with North Central Equity LLC.
Previously owned by North Central Equity LLC, Wells Food Processing has been purchased by Brakebush. The transaction of the Wells, Minn.-based company was completed April 21, 2016.
Founded in 1925 by brothers William and Otto Brakebush, Brakebush is proud to be U.S. owned and operated by the Brakebush family for over 90 years. Brakebush provides the food industry with over 200 high quality great tasting chicken products.
Brakebush has its state-of-the-art processing facility and corporate headquarters in Westfield, Wis. and a raw portioning plant in Irving, Texas. Since acquiring its Texas operation three years ago, Brakebush has more than doubled its overall business. From these two facilities, Brakebush services a wide array of customers in the fast casual, college/university, healthcare, school, convenience store, national chain and retail segments.
The purchase of the Wells plant adds a third processing facility and second fully cooked operation. “Adding the Wells facility puts us in a great position to continue to grow our existing customer base and aggressively pursue new business,” noted company president Scott Sanders.
“We’re excited about adding Brakebush to our industrial base and the manufacturing jobs they’ll bring to our community,” added Wells City administrator Robin Leslie.
